What are you waiting for - join up now and see what your kids are doing on camps. 

- You can also keep up to date with what is happening at Baden Powell Park via the group facebook page.:

PARENTS - You are welcome to join us on any night, help out and see what we do at scouts. 
Scouts is a great way to spend time with your children in a fun way. 
ALSO Please speak to Russ if you are interested in becoming a parent helper, or better yet, a scout leader.

Our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc have some interesting jobs and hobbies that may be of interest to the scouts, which we could include in our program.  It can be a full night, or part of a night, we can always incorporate it into something else.  A tour of your work place or incorporated into our badge work.  If you have something to share, please let us know.


When you joined Scouting, you made a promise – or took an oath, if you like – to do your best, do your duty to your God, the Queen of Australia, and/or your spiritual beliefs, help other people and live by the Scout Laws.
When conducting yourself at scouts, and out in the wider community, we ask you to consider just one thing. And that’s your Scout promise; the promise that you made to yourself and to your troop. That promise is a powerful thing. We all made it too. Keeping or breaking it is entirely a choice that each of us makes, every day.  We hope that as you go through life, that you choose wisely.  Not just for that scout event, or even for your troop, but for yourself - the best self that you can be.

Scouts Activities

Both of our Scout troops have very busy programs of activities which include games and activities like pioneering skills, swimming, canoeing, climbing, ice skating, cooking competitions and archery. Also we usually have two or three weekend camps every term. These include activities such as rock climbing, water skiing, hiking, snow camp, mountain biking, surfing, canoeing, survival skills, rogaining and various competition camps.

Our trained leaders help the Scouts to learn the skills needed to achieve a series of badges and to become leaders within the Scout troop. The badge award scheme gives our Scouts a knowledge of basic Scouting skills and marks achievements in areas such as citizenship, campcraft, air and water activities and improving the environment.


On my honour
I promise to do my best
To be true to my spiritual beliefs
To contribute to my community and our world 
To help other people
And to the live by the Scout Law 



Be respectful

Do what is right

Believe in myself
